international union and senator brown on the new campaign for the middle class. paul ryan is finally speaking, and he's still in the bubble. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas. >> ohio state senator turner is here to respond. the petition to see seed is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree with rick perry. texas is not allowed to leave the union. thanks for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first! aflcio president is confident the pr
minister gordon brown. he was criticized for giving brown as a handful of dvds adds a gift in 2009 but the president has seemed far more comfortable with brown's successor david cameron. they have gone to great lengths to show their relationship is alive and well. earlier this year they took in a basketball game together in march madness but the next day the leaders took pains to prove they were on the same page politically as well as personally. >> david shares my belief that in a time of rapid change the leadership of the united states and the united kingdom is more important than ever. so, david, thank you as always for being such an outstanding ally, partner, and friend. >> as barack has said, the relationship between britain and america is the strongest that it has ever been. i believe that's because we're working together as closely as at any point in our history. >>> in a test of that alliance cameron resisted pressure from inside his own country and stuck with obama on the 2014 time line to get troops out of afghanistan. the two countries have weathered the financial crisis
in ohio, senator brown and josh mandel, and i asked senator brown point blank could he support raising the eligibility age on social security medicare and he said no. that's just not going to happen. this was a guy who just won in a swing state. how many senate democrats are in that position? we know where the president is willing to go here and it's a lot further. >> no doubt about it and some of this, as brad mentioned earlier was discussed during the debt limit negotiations last year. how many senators would be with senator brown? probably ten. the rest would have to be kicking and screaming. i think everyone understands that some of these issues have to be addressed as part of a larger agreement. you mentioned speaker boehner, the other thing to watch out for is the fact senator mcconnell, normally a kaubs, very cautious politician by nature will look over his shoulder to make sure he doesn't face a tea party challenge. all of that together, i think, makes it a toxic atmosphere and something we will have to all watch carefully. >> now you -- do you believe that the president is giv
political problem. the notion scott brown would be a frontrunner to replace kerry if he were to tep out of that seat. the democrats have a little more cushion but not a seat that democrats would want to put in jeopardy and that's a mark against kerry. you also have someone very good in the senate in jack reed from rhode island who a lot think would be a great defense secretary. they have options. again to go to chuck hagel, strong people out there for both these jobs. they will fill them well one way or the other. >> and one point, chuck hagel is, of course, ray lahood was a republican but i think ray is probably going to leave as well. chuck hagel would be a great appointment and he's best suited for defense. wouldn't you agree with that? >> i think that's probably right. >> if you have reached a consensus on it -- >> chuck it is. >> i have decided not to leave this position for secretary of defense. i hate to say it now, ahead of the actual -- >> who would be better to take on the military end strum stril complex than you. >> we have to go to break. president obama turns mitt romney's
.3 trillion. our prisons are bursting at the seams with black and brown people. we need a change, and it's time for the president to lead on this one. >> neal franklin, a three-decade long career in law enforcement. thank you very much for your time tonight. you speak with uncommon authority on this subject. thank you. >> thank you, rachel. >> i can't help but wonder, what would j. edgar hoover have done with the petraeus file? hold on. that's coming up. >>> arizona, anytime you want to finish counting ballots, it's fine with the rest of us. don't let us stop you. more ahead. downy unstopables in-wash scent boosters, here with my favorite new intern, jimmy. mmm! fresh! and it's been in the closet for 12 weeks! unbelievable! unstopables! i'll show you how! ♪ just shake them into the washer i can't believe this lasts 12 weeks! neither can they. so you're going on tour to prove it. downy unstopables. follow jimmy's unstopables tour on youtube. >>> did you get your official results, senator flake? is it senator flake? >> congressman jeff flake of arizona, not senator jeff flake, not senato
're in this together. you saw in ohio the most important state, president obama, sherrod brown returns to office, speaking about fairness, the role of government, these are important issues. then on the other side, you had a republican party, a discredited brand with a shrinking base out of touch with values. >> so, when you talk about this coalition -- paul, was this a race that mitt romney could have won? >> of course, he could have won. he only lost by 100,000 votes in ohio. 70,000 in florida. lot closer than katrina suggest it was. $100 million unanswer ed ads ca do to an alternative candidate. the obama campaign did was systemically destroy that biography. he never recovered from the summer in the exit polls, romney still had a net unfavorable rating. in the exit polls, it was a net-unfavorable. this was more about a flawed messenger than a flawed message. mitt romney never made the sale. you looked at the economy and the exit polls, still blame george w. bush for the economic problems. 53%. romney never separateded himself from george bush. >> i wanted to get greta. you talked about that p
of scott brown, the former governor in hawaii, heather wilson in new mexico. they could not win because of their party's brand. heidi won. joe donnelly won. this is a one size brand contaminates all other candidates, even the ones that have no ability whatsoever in some of the exotic party. yeah, we are going to hear a bunch of people with iq's lower than room temperature say that mitt romney lost because he was not conservative enough. but i think after republicans go through their seven stages of grief, they can get to a point where they can make some changes if they will be a party for the future. >> thank you, charlie. we enjoy being here. we're trying to say something that is interesting and thoughtful and novel hours after the polls close. i hope i come close to what he said. i really wanted to come out here. i really wanted to come out here and say -- i just heard what charlie said. there is not one thing i agree with. he is absolutely wrong about everything. i never say that. we always agree. [laughter] we are in general agreement on what happened. politics is so much about expe
under then-governor brown who was known partially for this in the doons bury as governor moon beam. but he got it passed, so every new building in california had to meet energy efficiency standards. it's made california very efficient. these are the kinds of things, and as i said, portman and shaheen have been working on a compromise on this. these are the kinds of things we can do to make ourselves energy independent. my view, look, katrina -- sorry, sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or the ore. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry, we have had three or four hundred-year disasters -- sorry, i'm phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four year, we have had once in 100-year disasters. with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on, and that would be on the agenda. and
in 1978 passed building standards under then governor brown who was known partially for this in the doons burry as governor moonbeam but he got it passed. so every building in california had energy standards and it's made california very efficient. these are the kinds of things -- i said portman and sheheen have been compromising. my view, katrina -- sorry -- sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry -- we have had 300 or -- sorry. phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four years we have had once in a hundred year disasters with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on and that will be on the agenda. and the fourth thing i'd put on the agenda i talked about earlier in reference to your question, dave. maybe we can get some real fina
legislature, willie brown gender -- gerrymandered us with democrats controlling. are broken overspent and overtaxed. our senators are not helping us. think i actually don't am being that selected. lyndon johnson on the civil rights act, had great support from the northern democrats and the western democrats. was able to overcome the southern democrats opposition with the help of the republican party. i said that about everett dirksen so i am not really being that selected. i do think my book touches a bark -- upon the origins of the problems we have today, the toxic politics of america started in the late 1970's. one of the problems, very frankly, was the opposite -- was proposition 13 in 1978, the tax revolt that rolled in from california. i think the first basic no-tax pledge, the revolt of 1978, has been greatly responsible for california's decline. host: in the incoming term in the senate, there will be a record number of women, 20 women in all, serving in the senate. your book focuses primarily on men. do you see a shift in the operations or the decorum in the senate with so many
defeated senate candidate who would love to run for the open seat, scott brown, if kerry were to become secretary of state. it is true the foreign relations and foreign affairs committee have shown a little less influence as far as how far and policy is conducted. >> always good to use this as a reporting and opportunity. we don't know from our book whether it is menendez or boxer who would take the job -- who would it be? >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think to >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think boxer wants to give up energy and public works. i doubt she would want to do that. i think kerry's chances of becoming secretary of state increased when susan rice kind of flubbed her media response to the attack in benghazi, and she was already not well liked on the hill among republicans. recently when i saw former senator chuck hagel say nice things about bob kerrey who was re-running in nebraska, i thought, what in it be an interesting choice for the president to make? someone who was a longtime member of the foreign relations committee and who is very smart and
in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think his priorities should be coming out of today's conference? >> the president's priorities are as he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we're one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of representatives bring up our bill. we brought up their bill. it was roundly defeated. so they should do this to help the american people. all the other issues that the president has laid out a program on, job creation, we need to do that, so the president doesn't need any -- doesn't need any information from me. he knows what he's going to do. and he's pointed in the right direction. >> senator, what do you suggest -- >> last question. >> you probably couldn't hear the question. she said what do i expect from the meeting at the white house on friday and what about entitlement cuts? i have made it very clear, i've told anyone that will listen, including everyone in the white house, including the president, that i am not going to be par
